Snow Globe


Hello, and thanks for popping in today.
It was one of those weeks again when all the good crafting intentions just didn't happen, and I'm just getting round to show another card from last weekend.
I don't know about you, but I often buy a magazine just for the free stamps - they might come in handy, or so I tell myself, but more often they sit un-inked.  This snow globe is from a set from last year and it fit perfectly over the Inkylicious Winter Cabin.  Glossy Accents and lots of glitter to the base, popped up with foam pads.  The background is an old Papermania stamp and then a sprinkling of Chunky White embossing enamel to finish.

Well that's another for the box, but the little bell means it won't post.

Just a quick post, and hopefully I be around to do some catching up.

Snowy postcard

Hello, and thanks for popping in today,  I had a lovely crafty day  - caught up with DT projects and even did some cards for the Christmas box.
One of my favorite images, and I must admit it comes out every year, is this Stampendous Snowy Postcard, along with the Greetings stamp,  I've added the Tim Holtz holly sprig from the Thinlits Festive Greens along with the Christmas handwritten greetings die.  Almost flat apart from the pearls, so hopefully it will do for the posting pile!  A nice easy card to get the Christmas mojo working.

Just need to keep the momentum going now -   so off to play again,
Avril xx

Tis The Season at FSC


Hello, time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time, Dot has chosen the theme of 'Tis the Season'.   This could be Autumn or if you're like me starting to make your Christmas cards, well.... it's THAT season!
We have Flonzcraft as our Sponsor for this challenge and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.

I've used a Christmas Greetings from Flonzcraft for my card.  I started by dipping some card into Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter stains mixed with Ice Spruce Distress ink, it has a lovely sheen, which of course doesn't show in the photo.  I stamped using Ice Spruce DI, and on a spare piece of the card, stamped the Christmas Greeting again.  I coloured the robins and holly with DI's.
I also stamped and cut a Tim Holtz holly spray with Peeled Paint DI, heat embossed with clear EP before colouring with DIs.
The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration, so please pop over here where you will find all the details of the challenge, but don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and your stamping must follow the challenge theme.
Well, that's another one for the box, but I think I need to make a few more.

I am entering this at Stamping Sensations - Christmas Greetings

Have a great day,
Avril xx
